  • Mike Says: The Tigers will have to fight for that 3rd playoff spot. Thorndale, Weimar and Flatonia will all be tough competition. They return 12 starters from last years Area playoff team with a lot of that experience coming back on the offensive and defensive line. Look for them to go 5-5 or 6-4 in the regular season and make a run at that 3rd playoff spot.
  • Chris Says: Thrall is one of those teams that has a strong history, but has fallen to "middle of the road" in recent years.  This year the Tigers bring back 15 athletes and 12 of them were starters.  This experience should help them do better than .500, but they still have a tough district and tough region.  Thrall should make it back to the playoffs, but will likely only last two rounds into the postseason.
